    One thing we forget to understand and that applies to most of the third world people and African in particular, when Issias is befriended with Russia he thinks he will be protected or at least we get excited that he is getting one step forward.
    The question to Issias is what is he bringing in to the table?
    The Russian do not have anything to lose, they just gain one looser who does not have any friends and willing to be friends with his former enemies.
    As for Issias, he thinks that The USA will give a dump because he is sending his diplomat to Russia, his action is more for the oppositions and internal consumption.
    He can build a Russian famous poet Statue in the Middle of Asmara or on top of his Palace the but the Russian will still go with what benefits them. The big powers will always look for their interest he(Issias) on the other had goes out of his way for his ego and his criminal mind set.
    It is his ego that is killing our country and our people

    We Eritreans must not have any illusion.
    We should work to save our people and country urgently. No one is going to save our country. We have a duty to die to dispose Isaias, Mankey, Kisha and his supporters.

    We ,Eritreans, have to have the same aim as we had thrown the former government. Isaias is not the only person who rules Eritrea, but what about his followers. The mistake is not from Isaias, but it is from the leaders who were with him 30 years back from the Eritrean independence from Ethiopia. The majority people of Eritrea are inocents. One things we do not have to forget is that once military government come to power, it is not easy to overthrow the government. Isaias is not going to be longer in his power, but the leaders who follow his foot steps. Its our duty to save our people.
